The Ozy Genius Awards


OZY announces a celebration of young genius. This spring, it will award 10 summer grants to college students, with the aim of backing the next Albert Einstein, Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey or Harper Lee as he or she writes a book, films a documentary or launches a new company. The competition opens this month, with winners announced in early May.

How to Enter: Step 1: Fill out a short questionaire about your project. Step 2: Upload a short video or photo with a description of your project for the public to vote on.

Winners: Ten students will win up to $10,000 for their summer projects, and their work will be profiled by OZY and its partners in the fall.  

Judges: Submissions will be open for public voting and judged by a panel of executives, artists and advocates at the top of their fields, including Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collective, and David Drummond, chief legal officer and vice president, corporate development at Google.

Eligibility: The competition is open to undergraduate students at colleges and universities.
